|Romaine with Radicchio, White Beans, Celery and Watermelon Radish Salad|
Now the one positive constant in my life is my daily salad. Romaine; my favorite; has dominated our salads for the last few weeks. The firm and crunchy texture of this lovely leaf guarantees a good salad at least a day or two in the fridge. (Just don’t add the dressing until you are ready to enjoy). Romaine can be served chopped, torn, whirred into smoothies, added to soups and even grilled. The flavor is mild and goes with just about any combination of toppings. For today’s salad I added watermelon radish, radicchio, cucumber, celery and white beans. I served this salad with a red wine vinaigrette along with spinach and ricotta cheese tortellini’s topped with a light marinara sauce.
